You Can’t Please Everyone

This cracks me up. The first two emails I got about our new site design, about five minutes apart, were these:

  • Reader #1: God that is really ugly.
  • Reader #2: I love your new artwork! Kudos to the graphic designer!

I like the new design myself, though I’ll confess that the logo is…very large and orange. That said, does anyone want to help me guess what the graphic elements are supposed to mean? There are eight:

  1. Microphone
  2. Two arrows
  3. Map pin?
  4. Pencil
  5. Cat
  6. Speech bubble
  7. Outstretched hand
  8. Check mark

Half of these are pretty obvious. But what about 2, 3, 7, and 8?
